Export Video Clips

You may find it useful to export only short extracts of your video material for presentations or analysis sessions. You can export selected clips as distinct video files using the Multimedia Browser. These clips can also be inserted as new video files into your MAXQDA project. Additionally, you can also export already coded video clips as video files.

Exporting selected video clips using the Multimedia Browser

You can export a selected clip from the Multimedia Browser or insert it into your MAXQDA project as a new document:

  1. Select a sequence in your video material in the Multimedia Browser.
  2. Right-click on this sequence and select Export Video Clip in the context menu.
  3. In the dialog window that opens, specify the quality and resolution of the clip you would like to export.

Options for exporting video clips

To insert a selected video clip as a new document into your "Document System” - in other words, to add it as a new document to your open MAXQDA project - select Insert as New Document in the context menu for the selected clip.

Exporting coded video clips

To export a single coded segment of a video, select Export Video Clip for that coded segment. This function is available in the context menu when you right-click on the following:

  • In the Multimedia-Browser: coding stripes
  • In the “Retrieved Segments“ window: source information or rows in the displayed table
  • In the Overview of Retrieved Segments: rows in the displayed table

Exporting a video clip from the “Retrieved Segments“ window

Please note: Even if several rows are selected in the table view of the "Retrieved Segments" window or that of the Overview of Retrieved Segments, only the video segment you have specifically clicked on will be exported.

From the Multimedia Browser, you can also export all the coded video segments of one or more codes:

  1. In the toolbar, click on the Export coded video clips icon.
  2. In the dialog window that opens, specify the quality and resolution of the clips and select the codes whose coded video segments you would like exported.
  3. Click OK and a window will open in which you can specify a location to export these clips.
